Default What's everyone paying for brisket?

I went to Sam's today to pick up a flat and left empty handed! 4.66 a pound! Why so high I ask the girl in the meat dept. She said I don't know. Damn rib eye steak was only 3.94 a pound.

Like 1 month ago when I was at Sam's I saw full packers for $2.38 a pound. Maybe they have gone up as of late--haven't checked.

I just paid $2.44/lb yesterday for Choice and above briskets from Restaurant Depot.


If you wanna get ripped off, buy Sam's flats.
Usually, they carry whole packers, but you have to ask the meat cutters to get them because they don't usually put them out front in the case.

Flats are OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive!

Yea I think you'd be better off buying a packer. Probably would cost about the same and you get more.

Price around $3/lbs.

A local butcher sells smaller cab trimmed packers, usually under 7 lbs, for 3.99 lbs.. I get these most of the time because 12 pounds of meat can feed me and the old lady for a week.

SB weekend, I bought a plain full packer at $1.79. A lot has happened since and this wasn't a Prime or a CAB...

I'm paying $9 a kilo here, but it is grass fed in the most pristine environment on the planet, an absolute star in quality and taste.
It's one of the very few aspects where I feel we are getting a good deal compared to you guys.
